Hannah made a name for herself in the international music scene when she joined the Indonesian singing competition, Dangdut Academy Asia, where she won third place.

This victory opened more opportunities for her abroad, except plans had to be postponed due to the health crisis.

She relates, “Ang plano po noon is napapag-usapan na gagawan ako ng kanta din na Indonesian tapos sa events din ng network nila, i-invite din sana ako. Kasi nakabalik na ako once doon eh, wala pang pandemic noon, for their anniversary ng network nila. May balak pa sana masundan kaso nga ganito po ‘yung nangyari.”

Nonetheless, her international achievement taught her loads of lessons she still embraces up to this day.

She recalls, “Unang-una po is sa technique and also ‘yung lesson na binigay ko sa sarili ko… kumbaga, never stop learning. ‘Yun ang pinakamalaking lesson na itinuro ko sa sarili ko kasi kumbaga para sa akin din ‘yun, para mag-grow ako as an artist, as a singer.

“Kasi doon hindi madali, language palang ibang-iba, sa technique ng pagkanta. Tapos iba dito sa Pilipinas eh kasi may tendency kasi minsan sa atin dito na ‘pag bumirit ka, ang galing mo na. Doon kasi ang labanan doon is ‘yung puso kaya doon ka talaga matsa-challenge na kahit hindi ka bumirit, dapat makuha mo sila. Dapat humanga pa rin sila sa’yo.”

Hannah has definitely put this into practice when she took a risk and offered a different sound in her latest single, a novelty pop song titled “Sabi Ko Na Nga Ba” under GMA Music.

Despite the uncertainties of the times, she remains optimistic and she's not closing her doors to making a name in Indonesia in the future.

Hannah says, “Kung ako po sa sarili ko, why not. Kung ‘yun po talaga ang para sa akin, ‘yun ang ibibigay ni Lord para sa akin na career sa Indonesia. Ako open naman po ako sa kahit ano.”
